Description Laparascopic surgery allows: swifter recovery versus open surgery; fewer would complications; possibly greater value to low- to middle- income countries versus high-income. Nigeria is the fastest-growing economy and most populous country in sub-Saharan Africa. We present an analysis of patient outcomes after introduction of a laparoscopic general surgery at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (OAUTHC).
